A young girl returns home after being abducted - and that's pretty much the story! This flick is filled with all sorts of sci-fi surprises - big implants, an FBI investigation and a possible alien part. The aliens want to take over Earth by activating hidden technology inside breast implants at a particular time in a coordinated attack, using guided sonar sound to give the population mass constipation so nobody can resist the invasion. But there's a catch. Some people are deaf. Written by Glenn Derpwiler

Good bad movie/ Okay regular movie (Watchable, Entertaining)
5 May 2011 | by DarkAngelX5453See all my reviews

Okay, not the greatest movie ever made, but it was alright. I've seen several bad movies, many that top this one by a mile...(seen Nim's Island...ugh!). However, I happen to enjoy bad movies (go Route 666, Lou Diamond Phillips:), so my tolerance may run higher than others.

I know some people said they liked the bad guy from scrubs, but, REALLY? I can't even look at his face without laughing! I see him, I think scrubs, so no way, he was not the highlight of the movie. For anyone wanting to see it, good luck, I don't think they play it anymore. I had to search on ebay for this thing, and I found a copy. In Germany. So I can't really attest to acting, since everything was voiced over (Macht schnell! Macht schnell!), which faintly reminded me of Die Hard (Polizei, Karl, polizei!). And yea, the plot is kinda cliché, but, then again...most are. I haven't seen but maybe two or three in my entire life that were originals or unpredictable.

Overall, you should only see this if these types of movies are your thing...its not as bad as some, buts its definitely not good. I'd rate it okay. But ENTERTAINING for sure. (especially in German)
